The Woman's Century Club Scholarship

The Woman’s Century Club is a social club for women. We connect Seattle-area women interested in women's history, and seek to honor the graces of the past while investing in the young women of the future.


The club was founded in Seattle in 1891 by suffragist Carrie Chapman Catt and other female path-breakers, including Seattle's first woman superintendent of schools and the first woman to graduate in law from Yale. You can learn more about the club and our history online at our website.

Each year we award a $1,000 scholarship, as well as a two-year membership in the club, to an outstanding student who exemplifies the traditions of female leadership and service that were important to our club's founders. To apply, you must be a female U.S. citizen in your junior year at an accredited Seattle college or university, with high scholastic ability as well as financial need.

Don't Go, There's More!!
